I share a PC with my daughter each of us having a seperate account but only mine is a moderator account.
It is an AMD Athlon 2400+ with Windows SP2 Home Edition and for security I have Comodo Firewall, Avast Antivirus, Adaware, Spybot S&D, AVG Antispyware and Spyware Blaster installed.

I had noticed that when I go on the PC after my daughter I get a warning from Windows saying that I have no Firewall. This only lasts a second or two before the Comodo and Avast icons both cut in and the warning icon disappears.On the taskbar on my account I have shortcuts for Comodo, Avast,Avast VRDB, Spybot S&D Resident, Startup Monitor,my Soundcar, ATI Catalyst Control, I-Touch and Safely Remove Hardware.

Earlier this evening my daughter was showing me something on the PC and I noticed that some of the taskbar icons were missing on her account. The missing ones were Avast VRDB,Start up Monitor and Spybot S&D Resident. Now this may just be because she has a limited account and therefore be quite normal but I am almost sure that she has previously had the same Taskbar Icons as I have.

I would just like to run this past you guys if this is ok or should the same taskbar icons appear on both accounts. Thanks in advance for any help/advice offered,

When you installed the programs was the account for your daughter allready there? Best thing to do would be to re-install all..
